Our water budget is dependent on so many factors. This graphic from @usgs shows the connectivity between our water resources! Groundwater and surface interact in more ways than we know. Conserving on all fronts is the only way to keep the Colorado River healthy and flowing!

#waterwednesday back in action!! Have you been following the #California #drought situation? Gov. Brown has implemented a MANDATORY 25% reduction in water use statewide because it's that serious. That means no watering lawns, golf courses, etc. #Texas isn't far behind. Both states (the only states in the US) acknowledge two water law doctrines which lead to overuse and litigation. Cali has reached the point of crisis. Will we wait until the situation is dire before implementing meaningful water legislation or change our habits? We need to be proactive. Now.

#waterwednesday here's a @GoPro tutorial on water conservation: use a soapy bowl to handwash dishes then rinse all at once! This took 6 gallons v. 15 gallons needed for dishwashers. If using a dishwasher, wait until it's FULL and skip on pre-rinsing!

#waterwednesday Best way to deal with our water supply issues? Decrease the demand and conserve! I let the dishes pile up this week to show how I only used 6 gallons of water handwashing v. 15 gallons in regular dishwashers. If you use a dishwasher, wait until it's FULL and don't pre-rinse every plate/bowl/spoon- that adds more water! For the handwashers out there, fill a bowl or pot with soapy water to scrub instead of leaving the water running. Once you have a pile of soapy dishes, rinse them all at once! My faucet releases 1.5 gpm (gallons per minute). What about yours?

placesandpizza : I have .5 GPM aerators on my faucets! It's by Niagara conservation. I have one of their shower heads too with three settings .5, 1, and 1.5.
wildwoolley : @placesandpizza dang that's great! Looks like I need an upgrade! I've been considering faucet/shower aerators for all birthday presents this year. You just sealed the deal
hkayyyyy : Haha @wildwoolley the truth comes out
placesandpizza : Its the trimax shower head. Be careful, people love their showers with lots of water! It's normal to me now but it was weird stitching to that type of sprayer. Some people really want to hang on to their luxury.
daughteroftexas : Significant other that dries dishes for you...."priceless!"
wildwoolley : Of course they do! That's the hardest part of educating on conservation. We're at 2gpm in the shower now @placesandpizza
wildwoolley : @daughteroftexas so true!!!

#waterwednesday When the #wildwildwest was growing, water was managed federally, by the Bureau of Reclamation. Over time, water management was shifted to local governments. It is now so localized that no single entity is monitoring water projects or water use. Currently, there is a portion of the Trinity Aquifer that has NO governing authority. Nobody manages it. A large company, Electro Purification, plans to pump 5 million gallons a day from the aquifer and sell to growing #Austin suburbs (#Kyle, #Buda). They will not have to report how much they are pumping. To anyone. This could (will) affect the water table and surrounding areas' groundwater levels. Aquifer levels are projected to drop 50 feet in one year. Call your Texas state representative and demand a bill that manages our groundwater supply. This is really serious.

#waterwednesday Lets talk inflows and drought! Water flowing into lakes or rivers is called inflow. In the Texas Colorado River basin, inflows over the past 5 years have been the lowest recorded in HISTORY! Rain in our basin, and across the country, must fall in the right spots in order to flow into the water supply reservoirs. Most rain in the Austin area has fallen east of our reservoirs' watersheds and contributed very little. Lake Travis and Lake Buchanan are only 34% full. This picture is of students at LCRA's Redbud Center learning about the water cycle.

#waterwednesday Its been a year since Carlos and Charlies closed it's door due to the #txdrought. Look at the Lake Travis water level difference- no boats could reach the dock! Currently, Austin area water supply reservoirs are only 34% full! The time to conserve is NOW. Thanks @globalinheritance for the contrast idea 😊

Happy Water Wednesday! During Smart Irrigation Month, we should all be working to reduce our water use. While there has been great advancement in the field of irrigation equipment, keep in mind that your water conservation plans should focus on more than just your irrigation system. Combining efficient equipment with smart practices and products, like #Hydretain, can increase the amount of water you save.
